About 70 fighters of the Islamic State group have conceded to the terms of the Syrian Democratic Force near Syria’s Tabqa, which has been completely liberated, Operation Inherent Resolve said in a press release on Thursday.

“Approximately 70 ISIS fighters conceded to the SDF’s terms, which included the dismantling of IEDs surrounding the dam, the surrender of all ISIS heavy weapons, and the forced withdrawal of all remaining fighters from Tabqah City,” the release stated.

SDF said they fully seized the town of Tabqa and Syria‘s largest dam from Islamic State on Wednesday, a major objective as they prepare to launch an assault on Raqqa, the jihadists’ biggest urban stronghold.
